TACO BELL AIMS TO HIRE 5K PEOPLE FROM OUTDOOR HIRING PARTIES
On March 31, just before 10:30 p.m., a suspect argued with a drive-thru worker at a Taco Bell in Waldorf. Then, the would-be customer allegedly exited the vehicle, assaulted the employee and got back inside the car. From there, the silver sedan drove around to the front of the restaurant, where a group of people had gathered. Those on foot screamed at the car, before the driver reversed and accelerated forward, knocking the people to the ground and shattering the chain’s glass entrance on impact.
Footage of the frightening sight has been viewed over 140,000 times since it hit Twitter. After the crash, the driver fled the scene, NBC Washington reports. Authorities responded to restaurant, and several people were treated for injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.
